One of the Upstate's most intriguing party bands is the unruly six-piece Perry Road. Front-woman Miss Annabelle is accompanied by stacked harmonies from the rest of the group, and instruments including dobro, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel and washboard add to the melody and mayhem. This is a band that can slide quickly if not seamlessly from bluegrass standards to hyper-speed versions of Alanis Morrisette songs. And if Perry Road members are smiling especially wide these days it's because they are sporting a new addition: Spartanburg bass hero Don McGraw, who played for years with Matthew Knights, N.C. Rail and others, now makes his musical home on Perry Road. The band plays at Maggie Mae's in Spartanburg on Friday, July 10.
